This weekend was action packed. There was some traveling, some knitting, and some great company.
On Friday, we headed down to Santa Cruz, CA for a wedding. We went a day early to take advantage of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. I am not a roller coaster/crazy ride person, but I enjoyed watching my fiancé. We also took a stroll on the beach and checked out the sea lions.
The wedding was a rustic affair set on a beautiful ranch. The scenery was perfection. I had whipped up a shawl prior to the weekend. California (especially Northern California) is notoriously chilly when the sun goes down. By 6:00 pm I was so thankful for a warm wooly layer.
On Sunday, we headed home and just relaxed. We have been binge watching Game of Thrones and it is getting good. While watching I finished my Little Neon Cowl (Yarn: Twisted Owl’s “Birds of a Feather”). Inspiration for this cowl came from the Simple Ribbed Cowl by Orange Flower Yarn. My version is much smaller and thinner as a bulky cowl is not needed in San Francisco. Can’t wait to add it to my growing neckwear collection.
On Monday I headed to the pool with some of my friends from my book club. The day couldn’t have been more ideal. The sun was glorious, the margaritas were flowing, and of course I had my knitting in hand.
All and all a thoroughly relaxing weekend before the rush of the end of the school year. I couldn’t have asked for anything better 😊.
